What is Pig Jig?

The Silicon Valley Pig Jig is a community event with live music, line dancing, family friendly activities and games in a tailgate like environment.  In addition, corporate sponsors participate in a friendly amateur BBQ competition where they will have a chance to win accolades and bragging rights in four categories (ribs, tri-tip, wildcard and best tailgate)!  All proceeds benefit NephCure Kidney International whose mission is to accelerate research for effective treatments for rare forms of Nephrotic Syndrome, and to provide education and support that will improve the lives of those affected by these protein-spilling kidney diseases.

The Silicon Valley Pig Jig was started in San Jose in 2018 by a group of local and dedicated friends who wanted to make a difference in the lives of those that suffer from Nephrotic Syndrome. That first event was a huge success and together we raised over $250,000. In 2019 with even greater support from the community we raised $350,000 all benefiting NephCure Kidney International. In 2020, the Pig Jig was cancelled due to Covid-19 but is returning for 2021.  

This year the event will not be open to the public, but our corporate sponsors and friends will enjoy the event and BBQ competition. If you would like to join us on October 2, 2021 and help us save kidneys and save lives for all those that suffer from Nephrotic Syndrome, please contact us at or visit our Sponsorship page.
